Next Friday marks the beginning of the end of classes. Since I have no Friday classes this means I have only 4 more days of classes before finals and before I can finally get out of here! To put it plainly, I am exhausted. I turned in my final paper for philosophy today and I still have a work in progress for a chemistry group project but besides that and finals I am practically finished. It feels so good to be alive :)

Last week was really the worst week of these two semesters for me. I pulled three all nighters and worked eight hour shifts four days out of the week. I must have slept about 9 hours that whole week. I’m still feeling the exhaustion now so when I went to sleep last night and got eight hours of sleep my body probably couldn’t believe it because I was in a state of physical shock the whole day.

Not to mention (that is such a contradictory statement) my mom moved to Florida exactly two weeks ago and doesn’t give a crap if I get the same amount of financial aid that I received for being an instate student. Luckily, I talked to the financial office and they said I have a grant that will carry over until next year. I’ve never been so angry at a single person. I don’t even want to go down there. I should make the condition that Sephora has to come with or I’m not coming. Great plan :) I’ve been working nonstop at the Cellar out of fear of not being able to afford my phone bill among other things. When ever I see shifts pop up I grab them immediately. I actually worked an extra cook shift yesterday and am working a server shift this Saturday. I’ll be working my regular Friday Sunday and Monday shift and this extra server shift. That’s my whole weekend. That means I worked five days this week. Wanna cry dude :(

Just two more weeks until I’m done and can say I’m a sophomore!

The Stress

leave a comment »

The pressure will drive me insane. There is just too much for me to do in a day, a week a semester. Did I really have Spring Break just last week??? When I try to sleep at night I can’t. When I try to get naps they aren’t long enough. How does college expect me to survive. I can hardly think let alone do something productive. Not to mention I have two midterms coming up this week. Chemistry and philosophy, officially my most difficult classes. The worst part is for philosophy I have no idea what I’m even reading most of the time. How am I supposed to complete a whole midterm on the reading too? What worries me the most is that there is going to be a final O.O

I’m also working on an anthropology presentation that I have tomorrow. My partner and I never met up or even talked about it until yesterday. I am an absolute mess.

IPad 2 Release Today!

leave a comment »

I came to New York for spring break and I brought along my roommate Fionna. We came last Saturday via Chinese bus from Richmond to Chinatown. Six and a half hour drive people! Once we got into the city I found out that our ride into queens (aka my aunt) was no where near to picking us up so we had to take all of our luggage and my bunny rabbit in her carrier onto the subway. Poor Sephora was already scared senseless and then she had to deal with that loud subway. What made it worse was the F train being out of service so we had to go down into brooklyn just to get onto the correct train. It was too much in one day and with three bags a piece. When my aunt got us from the subway station we decided to eat out for the night but that took forever to decide on of course and my brother had to be picked up from home so he could join in. Thai was the meal of the night in the end. It was delicious. It was this restaurant a bit into Long Island down Merrick Road. All of this description means I forgot the name.

Fionna and I ended up spending the whole of Sunday napping and tv watching in my living room. It’s been such a long time since I sat down and watched television, there’s a tv in my dorm room now and I still don’t watch it. I’m so busy with work all the time I can’t enjoy entertainment. Still find the time for fanfics though. Fionna left Monday for Boston. I actually popped that “do you want to go New York with me tomorrow” question the day before we left. Fionna wasn’t planning on going anywhere for spring break but this gave her something to do and a cheap alternative from getting a flight home. She really surprised her parents, literally, she arrived in Boston called her dad and was like “can I get a ride home?” Her mom was even funnier she yelled at her and then hugged her. So Kodak.

With Fionna gone my sister and aunt at either work or school and my brother at a DECA competition I was going to be alone all day everyday until Thursday. My sister had the audacity to invite me to her boring school where there are no couches or anywhere comfortable to sit I was so tired that day and sleeping actually hurt. Big mistake.

After that it got better. Fionna came back bright and early Thursday and we went out to Koreatown to meet friends from our university. We went to a traditional like Korean restaurant called Han Bat on 35th between 5th and 6th. There was this giant shrimp in my dish, whose name I can’t even duplicate at the moment. It was pretty good though. My sister and her friend Matt, who’s in a jazz band that I’ve gone to seen, came to have dinner also. Our group left the restaurant and went to a hookah bar down on Astor place. First hookah experience. It was amazingly fun. I want to do it again as soon as possible. Afterwards we were sort of forced to split up because our friends got through to the 6 train and we didn’t make it haha. Very fun night though. My aunt was pissed because we were out until 3.

Which brings me today. For the last 3 or 4 days I’ve been going on the apple website and watching all the videos and reading all the info on the new iPad 2 released today. And today around 1:00 pm Fionna and I got to Prince St saw the line for the apple store already going down a whole block and joined it. We stood in line for five and a half hours and I bought an iPad. I’m an iPad owner as of today. I love this thing. I’m excited about all the things I’ll be able to do with it. We’ll see how much I’ll fall in love.
